With only a few elements – triangles, rectangles, and squares – the churn dash block is a great quilt block for beginners.
The exceedingly simple combination of triangles and squares of the churn dash block pattern makes it easy to learn and construct.
This popular quilt block can be arranged in different orientations to create stunning quilts with intricate designs.
It also offers a good way for beginning quilters to use strip piecing and half square triangles to complete the block.
In spite of its simplicity, it also provides a springboard into other quilts because it lends itself well to very intricate designs.
